According to the chairman of the concert, Monsignor Chimezie, over 20,000 people are expected to gather for a night of twelve hours of divine praise, worship and blessings.
He further stated that Unusual Praise is believed “to be a time of unusual encounter with God. So 12 hours of pure praise and worship is very unusual. It’s an opportunity for evangelism also because we invite people from all denominations; especially Muslims, especially atheist to come.
“We have had some testimonies, just some few testimonies. But we expect a lot of testimonies of conversion, testimonies of brokenness this year due to the level of preparedness that we have made. So we invite everybody to come and join and be part of the unusual praise and be a part of the unusual encounter this year.”
